Pharmacists are an integral part of the health care society. “Pharmacists: Caring for you” is the theme of this year’s World Pharmacists Day. This year’s theme was chosen to reflect the important role of pharmacists in providing care to the public, and also to highlight the emotional connection they have with their patients. The role of pharmacists has evolved from that of a provider of medicines to that of a provider of care.
The event started with an Introduction followed by the Pharmacist Oath. The students felicitated all the teachers as they are the ones who are the true pharmacist and they guide the students to be a responsible pharmacist as well.
A skit was performed by the first year students depicting the importance of a teacher in making us what we are today.
The next event was the Debate Competition which was organized by Arun Lal and Kartikey Singh Raikwar. The topics of the debate were ‘E-Pharmacy in India’ and ‘Ban on Fixed dose combination’.
